Multilingual California Project

overview

overview

California Association For Bilingual Education (CABE) and Butte County Office of Education (BCOE) have entered into a collaborative agreement to participate in the Multilingual California Project (MCAP), Education Workforce Incentive Grant (EWIG) from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2023.  Awarded to four counties throughout the state, BCOE represents the MCAP Northern Region Local Educational Agencies. Future Educator Support (FES) of BCOE will ensure the successful launch, implementation, and deliverables of the MCAP Project and serve as primary contact with LEAs selected to participate in the grant.
 
The MCAP is a three-year program (2020-2023) funded at $457,536, through an Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG) in conjunction with the California Department of Education (CDE) and the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE). Section 84 of the Education Omnibus Trailer Bill (Senate Bill 75) for the 2019–20 California State Budget established the Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG) program to support professional learning opportunities for teachers and paraprofessionals across the state.
